The 2nd Annual Walk for Andrea will be held on Sunday September 24 , 2017 at 10:30 am at Milne Park in Markham, Ontario, Canada.    The Walk for Andrea is in honour of Andrea Mariano. In September 2015, Andrea died due to an allergic reaction during her first few days at Queen's University after sipping a drink she bought on campus.  The drink was contaminated with one of her allergens - dairy . Andrea's death hit close to home for our family since Sahil, 13 and Jaya, 7 both have multiple anaphylactic food allergies.  Andrea's death intensified our desire to help fund research to find a cure.  Last year we joined with our friends, family and Andrea's family  and  organized the first fundraising walk in Andrea's honour.   Many of you donated last year and helped us raise over $17,000 ! We are continuing our efforts this year.  All funds raised will again go to the Sick Kids Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis program to find a cure for life threatening food allergies.  Please help us by donating to the Walk for Andrea at    Just click on the donate button or go to the Sick Kids portal link and start your own fundraising page! All donations of $20 and more will receive a charitable donation receipt. Let's cure food allergies together! Many thanks from Jyoti, Peter, Sahil, Anika and Jaya
